Good strategy for keeping your Facebook friend count low: give people the boot on their birthdays. January 29. Happy birthday Karthik Reddy. We once had a sociology class together but I barely remember you. See ya!
But how do you decide when to keep someone?
Has this person been to jail? They stay. Shotgun wedding? Hello, you're accepted. A growing number of weird and ill-advised tattoos of dragons? Keep forever. It's weird, it's voyeuristic, but admit it, we all have creepy criteria or whose bizarro life updates we want to keep in our news feed. So spill.
